Organizations typically hire an external executive coach to further develop high potential leaders, facilitate the transition of a leader into a new role, or to address potential career-derailing behavior. From our experience, the most sustainable success occurs when our clients commit to proactive coaching for emerging leaders and leaders in transition; where the executive embraces the idea of coaching and has a say in who their coach will be.
As your executive coach, we take on the role of mentor, trainer, advisor, sounding board and confidant in an objective, confidential, and business focused manner. We provide a coaching experience which is respectfully candid, has an eye on the future, identifies specific topics for development focus, and creates a path for leaders to follow. Additionally our clients gain a variety of practical and actionable tips to help them become even more effective leaders.
We don’t believe in an overly pre-scripted approach to coaching or an expectation of magical overnight changes. Our experience has validated that leaders need to build a relationship with a coach they trust and respect, collaborate to identify development priorities, and spend significant effort on a development plan designed for their personal situation and the uniqueness of their organization. Our approach is one that allows the executive to methodically incorporate improved behaviors so that the end result is sustainable change where the client stays true to who they are.
Depending on the situation, we utilize a variety of tools and assessments including 360° feedback, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), team effectiveness surveys, competency assessments, the use of proven books on leadership and communication to reinforce learning, and a healthy dose of “holding up the mirror.”
Our clients have included leaders in a variety of industries and have spanned organizational levels from company presidents to directors and mid-level managers; all with their unique development needs and organizational situations.
If you are looking for proven coaching to enhance leadership behaviors, further develop communication skills and improve organizational performance, let’s talk.
